I recently acquired a new radiator duct from Victoria British. The issue is that the black shiny finish is on the inside, not on the outside as with the existing part. Image001 is a photo of the existing part. Image002/image003 is the new part. The new part has the shiny black finish on the inside of the duct. I have raised this with them, but the QC department insists that their part is correct. What is everyone seeing on their TR4's - should I fit the new part or return it? Thanks for your help.

Hard to see the inside surface on the one in my car, but the outside looks like your 3rd picture.

Thanks! On your recommendations I fitted the radiator duct, and was happy to see it conformed to a number of other TR4’s at a show - even won a prize. It makes sense now that the shiny / water resistant side would be inside as that’s where all the water and dirt is going to be ingested.
